How Much Does This Fish Weigh?

Recommended Posts

I'm too cheap to buy a scale and I wanted to get some opinions.

If you don't weigh it on a scale it weighs whatever you want it to weigh

Looks to be mid 4s. Really big head and mouth.

Common answers for bass are going to be either 5 pounds, 8 pounds, or 10 pounds. Nothing in between. Pick one and then say that you weighed it on two separate scales and then your story will fit right in. Or, look up the state record, go one pound underneath it, and there is your weight.

I always chuckle at the "two seperate scales" line.

Lol ^ I was thinking 6+ 

99% of 6lb fish are actually 4.

Yea it's hard to tell. He could be 6'2 or 5'6" ha-ha. It's a nice bass tho. That fish would make me feel so great.

After re-examining . I can see why people say 4 he's kind of sticking it out there.  These things are pointless. Lol.

& it doesnt have the mid section girth to match its length & mouth/head size.

If people would carry a simple soft tape measure. It would be more credible and much easier to estimate. Here's a pic of my 21in bass with 15in girth etc.

That's a 3 lb body on a 6 lb head and tail.

That is your average 3-3 1/2 lb bass held out to the camera.

Why not bring a scale, I don't get it? I fish from a kayak, with the smallest tackle box Cabela's sells and still bring one. The fish in my avatar is 3lb6oz, selfie pic with the fish nearly touching my face. But still the camera is too close so it looks bigger. The OP's fish looks significantly larger, I'd be surprised if it wasn't a mid 4lb fish or better. But again, gotta have that scale!

Maybe 4. Long arming the fish makes it much harder to tell. At that point all we have to really go off of is the size of your fist.
